You Oughta Know: "Facts" & "The Truth" Just Aren't What They Used To Be

Okay, so I just read this article on The New Yorker's site "The Decline Effect and the Scientific Method", and it had some pretty shocking results to me. Why shocking you may ask?

According to Ioannidis, the main problem is that too many researchers engage in what he calls “significance chasing,” or finding ways to interpret the data so that it passes the statistical test of significance—the ninety-five-per-cent boundary invented by Ronald Fisher. “The scientists are so eager to pass this magical test that they start playing around with the numbers, trying to find anything that seems worthy,” Ioannidis says. In recent years, Ioannidis has become increasingly blunt about the pervasiveness of the problem. One of his most cited papers has a deliberately provocative title: “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False.”

Kicking off this new weekly series of "Throwback Tuesday" (which will feature good and timeless music), is the famous reggae band Inner Circle with one of their most popular hits: Sweat (A La La La La Long). - QBF

Site Update News!

Okay, so the results are in for the Jamaica Blog Awards, and yours truly has made it to the Top 5 in both of my nominated categories: "Best Entertainment Blog" and "Readers' Choice"!!

I'm very happy with this development of course, and hope that the judges will look favourably upon my site during their assessment period (January 4th - 11th), so that I can sweep my two categories -- ah, a guy can dream can't he?
